What would be a catchy name for a new coffee brand?

Asked by MatChup (204 points ) January 5th, 2013

I have a few contacts directly to a few farmers in Vietnam. I went to Vietnam three years ago to teach English in various cities in the southern part of th country. Now, a few years later a friend contacted me and told me she wants to sell directly to stores bypassing the distributor. She told me they are currently selling 200 tons of coffee monthly at a very low price. I am just trying to come up with a catchy name and I thought the collective would have better ideas than just me.

What would this name sound like: KickIn’ Coffee ? What connotation does it bring up?

I think hooves pounding on the dirt and it sounds nasty to me.

I was just looking over Terra coffee. Although Terra is an Italian name, it comes from the word Tierra in Spanish which means from the soil. Since Terra Coffee already exists, I was thinking about the name “Of the Soil”, which translated to Semi Italian, could be “D’Terra Coffee”

Consider the word Cup in the name and add your own adjective. Perfect? Best? Friendly? My Favorite?

They are selling coffee within Vietnam? Or to America? The audience matters a lot.

@Sunny2, thanks for your ideas. I’m looking all the possibilities: Sapid Cup, Piquant Cup, Optim Cup, Primo Cup.
@jaytkay. mainly USA, but worldwide not locally in Vietnam

Out House Blend – as opposed to House Blend

@Shippy, thanks for your feedback but Out House Blend is already taken, look http://akcoffeeroastery.com/outhouse-blend
However, the noun/verb “blend” adds another set of possibilities.

lục địa Châu Âu – Continent Blend

Châu Á Blend – Asian Blend

or Blend of Châu Á – Blend of Asia

Hương vị of Asia – Taste of Asia

Thơm of Asia Taste of Asia

Mịn House Blend – Smooth House Blend

Nhà Blend -House Blend

@MatChup Thơm of Asia Taste of Asia

I quite like that without the affect on the o, Thorn of Asia which is taste of Asia (Vietnamese)

Maybe consider trying to use the term “Orient” or “Oriental” since Vietnam does come under that description…so Oriental Blend, Coffee from the Orient etc

Well..I’d suggest a little Vietnamese opium blend myself.
I think the real money will be in marketing the creamer.
Those happy Vietnamese cows chest high in Opium poppies.

Ho Chi Minh Cow creamer.

The happiest cows are Vietnamese cows. I know, I have seen them chewing their heroin cud. lol

I appreciate all of your suggestions. I will take all of your ideas into account. I will first look up if any of these names are already taken, then I will visit a SCORE branch to consult them about their ideas as well. I will give them the sample names you suggested.
